Stem cells are biological cells found in all living organisms, that can divide and differentiate into specialized cell types. Furthermore, they can self-renew to reproduce more stem cells. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. Stem Cells Facial Scars is a state of the art treatment in Plastic Surgery.
Stem cells can be obtained from several sites in humans: Bone marrow is the commonest source using bone marrow puncture. However fatty tissue have the highest concentration of stem cells. Liposuction is the traditional method to obtain these stem cells. Finally, blood through pheresis is a source of stem cells.
Prof Wilson finds that the least risk of stem cells is by harvesting them from your own body, just as one may bank his or her own blood for elective surgical procedures.
Almost all Plastic surgeons harvest Stem cells from fat tissue. Prof Wilson performs initial liposuction, usually under local anesthesia, then the sucked fat is treated in a special way. He centrifuges and filters the fat, and then adds several factors to enhance growth of the stem cells. Subsequently, he injects the stem cells at the site desired by the patient.
The medical uses of stem cells are evolving by the day. Prof Wilson limits the use of Stem cells in Plastic Surgery to :
1- Rejuvenation procedures involving filling of wrinkles and defects …etc.
2- Treatment of scars.
3- Breast Augmentation in women.
With such a novel treatment modality, and with research evolving daily, treatment success rates are constantly getting better. However the most important factors are related to the operating surgeon. These include the site of harvest, meticulous yet gentle operative technique, growth factors added, technique of purification of stem cells…etc.
Dr. Wilson achieved survival rates of 75-90% with stem cells, which is comparable to worldwide rates.
A unique use of Stem cells pioneered by Dr Wilson is in Facial Scars. After revising scars with his technique, and using Botulinum toxin which he pioneered, he impregnates the facial scars with Stem Cells. They further improve the appearance of Facial scars and create new facial skin. This provides the ultimate improvement in scars and is a revolutionary treatment of scars worldwide.
Professor Wilson believes that affordable cost plastic surgery is the right of every individual. He will never allow financial restraints to prevent you getting rid of your unsightly face scars. However, many factors affect the cost of stem cell treatment, including the site of face scars, dimensions of the scar, type of skin, and other factors. After the consultation, the patient coordinator will offer you an affordable price quote.
